Creative Conversations – 2-17-15 – “Dehumanizing of Humanity”

“Dehumanizing of Humanity”

This Conversation starts with me talking about my 365 day Journal.  Journaling for me is a way for me to process lots of things in my world.  For some artist it’s about creating beautiful things, others it’s political expression, or women’s issues however, my art work is about raising consciousness.  My own first and then hopefully the viewer will explore their own cosmic reality and accessing their higher greater self.

In this Creative Conversation I will explore some of the topics that I think about, which informs my artwork, and my healing work as a Reiki Master and a Creativity Coach.

“The Ultimate Vacation”

I came across these two quotes and humorously imagined how well they worked together conceptually….As creatives we are constantly looking for that time alone to create….to manifest the ideas of our inner self….

We are often looking for ways to stay in the flow…be in constant creativity…in a lot of ways shut out the mundane mediocre aspects of the worlds around us, yet keeping all of the beauty, fascination and inspiration that Mother Nature has to offer…

So I had this thought, you know how I’m always preaching :), that our creativity is a state of mind, of being…

We carry it everywhere and the more we nurse it, acknowledge it and celebrate it daily the more available our creativity becomes, syncing with a constant flow through out every aspect of our lives.

So now I present you with the Ultimate Mind Release, aka Vacation…

If we can agree with the words of Ambrose Bierce, that Art is above definition…

That’s a mega liberator!

We become free to explore and enjoy our creative powers without defining and putting what we do in small boxes so that others can somehow try to understand our Passions.

Which as we have all experienced can be a weight that saps our drive and inspiration at times…

Second…

If we get on board with Ms. Tharp and agree that Art does give us permission to leave our everyday world jump into the wave of creativity, inspiration and innovation as we remain exactly where we already are…

Which could be a fully outfitted studio/office, the re-purposed kitchen table or that 15 min break I talk about, where your work desk becomes your creative lab…

It’s all the same and gets us where we’re going if we allow our state of mind to remain in control of our habits and our bodies and our worlds…

Let me know how your Vacation goes!


As Always…With Much Peace and Love

“Life Is….”

I found myself this week thinking quite a bit about how Passion can chase you down in your life…

Of course the people, places and activities that we surround ourselves with goes a long way towards re-enforcing our interests…

When I read the above quote I really felt that it hits home the idea of our life not being separate from our passions, our dreams…

In the last post I shared with you the methods I’ve used to stay connected, focused and motivated…

This idea that everything we do will be infused with the essence of who we are, and the special way we relate to the world…

Try observing your life this weekend, think about the everyday mundane tasks that we often take for granted, we do them the way we were taught by family, teachers or our cultures and yet we’ve never placed our own stamp on them…

Start stamping your world with your dreams, even in the smallest of ways and the smallest of things…

This keeps us reminded, surrounded and infused with the essence of our passions….

Have a great weekend…Happy Stamping!!

As Always…Much Love
